Tinsdills Solicitors Leek recently supported Leek CSOB Football Club by contributing to the costs for a match day physiotherapist / first aider. The club don’t currently have anyone with any medical experience or qualifications who can assist them on match days so if any of the players get injured it is a bucket of cold water and a sponge to the rescue. Without Tinsdills’ support they couldn’t have afforded this critical support for the remaining games of the season as the cost is far too high for Leek CSOB.
Leek CSOB Football Club was formed in 1945 by the late schoolmaster Trevor Harvey to provide football and other sports for the youngsters leaving school immediately at the end of the Second World War. All at the club are unpaid volunteers. This includes all players, managers and club officials, so any help to support the club is always most welcome and much appreciated.
More About Leek CSOB
Leek County School Old Boys has run continuously since its formation, starting off in the Leek Minor League, and in 1948 the late manager, Ernie Webster, ran the team. The club played in the local Youth League until the 1959/60 season.
Harry Lacey came on the scene and he became the man that kept the club running for some 11 years, almost single handed.
The club became founder members of the Staffordshire Senior League , and in the 1990s ex club chairman, Chris McMullen led the club on the field to its most successful period in its history. The then chairman, Ken Hill, led the club in those successful days and he along with his management committee took the massive step for CSOB, to join the North West Counties Football League following the winning of the Senior League Championship and the chance of promotion to the NWCFL Division 2 in the 1995/96 season. Ken Hill was the Chairman of the Club for 25 years and his leadership was a period of great stability. He was well respected by everyone in the Non-League game.
